These are the rehousing options available to you following a Selective En bloc Redevelopment Scheme (SERS) announcement for your flat. Review them to decide on the option that suits you best.
You can choose to purchase a new 99-year lease flat at the designated replacement site.
Using the housing subsidy
Buying private property or reselling the replacement flat
Renting out the replacement flat
Apply for a replacement flat elsewhere through our Build-To-Order (BTO) or Sale of Balance Flat (SBF) exercises within the grace period, with rehousing benefits and a 10% priority allocation, or Re-Offer of Balance Flats (ROF) exercise with rehousing benefits.
We set aside up to 10% of the flats offered in BTO or SBF exercises for priority allocation under the Resettlement, Relocation, SERS, and Tenants' Priority Scheme. Under this priority scheme:
If you have been shortlisted to book a flat under a BTO or SBF exercise, or book a flat under the ROF exercise, and then decide not to carry on with your public sales application, we will place you at the back of the selection queue for a new flat at the designated replacement site.
Completion of BTO or SBF flat elsewhere
To give you more time to find out the rehousing benefits before deciding to sell or transfer your current flat, there will be a one-month freeze on the resale or transfer of the SERS flat. You can sell or transfer your SERS flat with the rehousing benefits thereafter. You cannot sell your SERS flat if you have previously enjoyed SERS rehousing benefits.

You (including occupiers and existing private property owners) can only buy or acquire an interest in a private property after you have met the minimum occupation period of the replacement flat. Otherwise, you may not be able to buy or keep the replacement flat.
Private property refers to any property (flat, house, building, or land) other than the SERS flat (whether residential or otherwise, including but not limited to privatised HUDC flats, ECs, properties outside Singapore, properties acquired by gift or inheritance and properties owned, acquired or disposed through nominees).

Rehousing benefits are based on the status of the households. The benefits may include a SERS grant, concessions on resale levy or premium, and type of flat eligible for.
We will pay you the compensation based on the market value of your flat as at the time of SERS announcement, and some reasonable expenses to help you move.
